    About this recipe: The citrus marinade used in this recipe is made with sprigs of fresh marjoram. One or two hours of marinating is all that is required: a longer period affects the texture of the fish.

    Serves: 4 

    • 7 tablespoons fresh grapefruit juice
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 dessertspoon chopped fresh marjoram
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 800g (1 3/4 lb) halibut steaks
    • 4 sprigs fresh marjoram, for garnish

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Mix together grapefruit juice, olive oil, 1 dessertspoon marjoram, salt and pepper in a shallow glass dish. Add fish, turn once to coat both sides, then cover. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, turning once or twice.
    2. Preheat barbecue.
    3. Reserve marinade, and place fish in lightly oiled wire basket. Place fish 4 to 6 inches above hot coals. Grill for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once and brushing twice with reserved marinade, until steaks are barely opaque in thickest part. Arrange on a platter, and garnish with sprigs of marjoram.


    Choose Pacific halibut for the most sustainably sourced choice.

    I changed the fish to dover sole and found that the marinade, even after two hours had not really penetrated enough to have the the flavour impact I would like after 90 minutes. So, definitely take care to baste the fish with the marinade.  -  06 Jun 2015


    This is a very good, light marinade.  -  21 Jul 2008


    We really enjoyed this halibut and recommend it highly. We marinated 1 1/2 hours.  -  21 Jul 2008
